    Iron Front: Liberation 1944.... Pretty much an Arma 2 mod made into it's own game, with loads of yummy ww2 goodness!

    Bought it, but then realised it multiplayer used gamespy... this was about 2 weeks after the gamespy servers went for good. Instead of players moving onto their own replacements (aka bf2 style), they abandoned it for arma 3..... Was so upset.

    After that probably spore, I was so hyped for that game!

    I'm going to add Fallout 4, only because it was so inferior to Skyrim, Fallout 3, New Vegas and totally blown out of the water by far superior The Witcher 3.
    It was a decent game.

    Unfortunately it was a s**t fallout game.

    Yeah definitely, though, admittedly there's still a fair few shows that get the right balance!! Can you speak Japanese at all?

    Yeah you definitely need to, haven't lived until you've tried their games! Personally I'd go for the linear ones first, so you feel that much better going into the bigger ones (linear: Type-0, XIII/-2, Lightning Returns)

    Easy mistake, as it's quite likeable with most people! Hate written exams, but that's only because the only time I ever use a pen is to do my signature.

    Can't be that bad? But congratulations!! Knowing I'm stepping on the plate is quite scary since it was FYP demo day today! :hmmmm:
    I can speak a little, not nearly as much as I used to though! I used to be bilingual, and then I've slowly lost it. Especially since coming to university, and going 10 weeks at a time without listening to my mum's voice.

    Ah I see, I shall definitely get on to playing them over the summer! Even if I get my placement, I will be all alone in Cambridge and will have my evenings to kill. It's the best time for gaming and fully immersing youself when you're completely isolated.

    Aha, yeah I'm the same. When I need to jot down a few things, it's always on my laptop, so it feels really unnatural when I pick up a pen.

    We'll see how it goes but I've enjoyed myself since finishing the dissertation anyway. Need to actually focus on exams now... Oh how did the demo day go? You feeling inspired?

    Definitely worth it!! Yeah for sure! I hate being disrupted when I'm playing games, even when I'm on MMO (XIV) I never socialise with people, well except for the free company (clan)

    Tbh, before my exam last semester I never had a pen in my hand for like 4 years, so it was like "So... This is how you hold a pen then" :rofl: shouldn't probably get used to it, got another 2 exams next year!

    I thought the dissertation would've been the be all, end all? Your exams at the end of May or something?

    It wasn't for us, but from what I witnessed a few people saying this doesn't work, or I lost that! Pretty scary tbf! More scared than inspired! Didn't actually see many of them, though one lad done 100,000 words on his!! :lolwut: :yikes: ... I mean that's like... 10 dissertations worth of words!

    There are some games which were so bad in playing them. And of course that is why I regretted it to buy these games. But there is a certain N64 game which was so disappointing, as I have expected alot more: Holy Magic Century! boy, what a bad RPG. I have not like it, be it the soundtrack, the game play or the storyline about this one. That was not a waste of money only, but also a waste of time.

    I'm in need of a game which is a bit **** by any standards, but still fun and addictive to play... does that make sense?

    ****ing atrocious. heinously disappointing. it was as much of a let down as a brick falling from a skyscraper for me. absolutely horrifying.
    I actually got the game a week early too. everybody on my friends list, when they saw what game I was playing on the irst day I had it, went absolutely *bananas* with excitement, i.e. "omggg how are you playing MW2?!?!?!" etc
    overall, the multiplayer was a breeding ground for campers, there was no zombies, the story seemed quite void of actual "story" (at least as much of what I played seemed that way) and the "special ops" mode was ****ing stupid - it would have made for a better impression to simply not bother. while some of those missions were all right (well, the guilli suit mission at least) the hole left where zombies had been in WAW was too big to fill with something as timid as special ops

    MW2 was the first game I ever sold in my life and it actually caused me to constantly be sceptical of both COD games and games with a lot of hype in general. MW2 is more useful to me flushed down the toilet than it is inside my system.

    You let me down, James Pond.


    Did you know this game was originally released in 1991 for Commodore Amiga and Mega Drive? There was a short-lived series of Pond games during the early 90s

    He can run about the same speed as Sonic when he goes down slopes and makes me wonder if the devs had seen any gameplay of Sonic prior to releasing their game. I mean it's doubtful because they both came out in 91, but ya never know.

    I'm not buying it, at least until i've seen multiple reviews. I love warhammer and i love(d) total war but they let me down so badly I have no faith in CA any more. Though I'd like a 40k RTS, i find the setting better as its all fancy sci fi =P
    Dawn of war 3 would be for you then
